Telltale Games has announced its video game adaptation of The Expanse will begin on 27th July 2023 for PS5, PS4. The game will be split across five episodes, with one released every two weeks, meaning the full series will be complete by 24th August 2023. Pre-orders will go live on 1st June 2023 for a standard version and a Deluxe Edition, with the former offering 24 hours of early access and the latter containing bonus DLC that’ll be revealed at a later date.
Cara Gee returns to reprise her role as Camina Drummer, who “must deal with a mix of powerful personalities, square off against a bloody mutiny, explore locations beyond The Belt and, most of all, make tough decisions that will decide the fate of The Artemis crew”. The game is set before the events of the TV show, so you don’t need any knowledge of the Netflix series in order to play. It’ll cost $39.99 for the base game.
On the official Telltale Games website, it’s said: “Thank you. We wouldn’t be here without you. We wouldn’t be able to keep telling these amazing stories without your support. As a new studio rebuilding, your faith and giving us the chance to make more games means the world to us.”
